The race to build a better Oculus Rift is officially on.
Xbox what? PlayStation who? If you've already jumped ship to PC gaming, but miss sitting on a comfy couch and playing games on the big HDTV, then Valve's Steam Machines may be something to consider next year.
And you thought waggling motion controllers and Kinect made you look weird while gaming.
The CEO of Valve (the company behind Steam) throws his two cents on cloud gaming.
SteamBox or no SteamBox, it doesn't matter. Whatever the case is, Valve is definitely cooking some kind of hardware that could take the entire gaming industry by surprise.
Valve CEO Gabe Newell already spilled the beans on his interest in building hardware, but is the company behind PC gaming's popular Steam platform really gearing up to bump heads with Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo? We've compiled the rumors for you to call it legit or not.
If you don't know Valve, you don't know gaming. Gabe Newell, CEO of the company responsible for hits like Half-Life 2 and Portal as well as the awesome Steam platform says that building its own hardware is something the company might consider. Is that disruption we smell?
Even if you haven't played Valve's excellent puzzle shooter, you've probably run into characters from the Portal universe somewhere, whether it be a homicidal robo-ball or an irresistibly adorable cube. Portal's zany cast makes for some good video gamin', and awesome gifts to boot.
Valve's Steam platform is in danger of turning into a nightmare similar to Sony's PlayStation Network hack earlier this year. Gabe Newell, co-founder of Valve informed users that they've detected hackers have accessed a database with encrypted info. Newell's just not sure if any credit card info was stolen yet.
Don't tell anyone, but I'm currently sitting here counting down the minutes until I can head out of the office and go get a healthy dose of some Portal 2 craziness. All day it's been a long, painful wait. Well, if you need a quick fix, you can check out the first 15 minutes right here, right now.
